Just out of the theater and found this to be pretty disappointing.
While Tomei is fine at times, I tend to agree with BettyBoy72 regarding how she doesn't seem to channel the primal aspects of the character. I felt like I was watching her act.
The play is slow, tedious and the tone is all over the place. Perhaps the problem comes with how the text is being played. I've always seen this play as more light hearted and funny. It's sticks out like a sour thumb

A large void has now appears in the fabric that is Broadway .As far as dimming the lights they should be off for a week to commemorate his life and condolences to his family We shall never see his like again Rest quietly sweet Prince"
